Dr Tsai is excellent at diagnosing your health problem and giving you the options available to resolve the problem or give you relief. He knows well the benefits of rehabilitation over providing a quick fix with drugs. He is very knowledgeable and keeps abreast of the current trends in the medical field. He also knows what other medical doctors there are in the area to refer you to if necessary.

I have seen Dr. Tsai several times over the years (since 2011) & he is awesome. He will do his best to give you the best treatment he can. He listens to his patients & answers any questions you have. I would recommend him to anyone needing a physiatrist.

I am very greatful to be a patient of Dr. Tsai.. Dr. Tsai is very caring and professional. He and his staff are very thorough and thoughtful in meeting my medical needs. I never feel rushed, The doctor doesn't leave his patients waiting. When it is my turn, he spends as much time as I need. After I leave the office, I'm confident all my questions and concerns have been met. I don't easily recommend anything or anyone, but I would highly recommend Dr. Tsai and his staff.

My experiences w/ Dr. Tsai have always been filled w/ compassion and professionalism. I have been treated by Doc Tsai for nearly a decade, and I have and will continue to recommend him to friends and family because of the results he and his Rehabilitation Specialists always offer. Doc is a great listener, has patience, offers easy to understand prognosis, and has seen me quickly. I am an aging athlete and thanks to Doc & his associates, I can continue doing what I love to do! Thanks Doc

It was a super experience to have a doctor that listens and truly can give an educated diagnosis with out having tunnel vision of thought. For three years I have been searching for the right answers. Dr. Tsai. does not have tunnel thought and action. Three days have passed and the management of my pains I have for three years. Is so much better.

All of Dr Tsai's staff were extremely friendly, courteous, and helpful with one exception. This is most unfortunate as most, if not all, patients must come in contact with this individual. Were it not for this one person, I would have gladly given 5 stars for each of these ratings!

He is a great Doctor, he's one of those doctors that's down to earth and talks to you until you understand. He always answers all of your questions. He's my favorite doctor by far in the last 30 years of seeing a lot of different doctors. Great choose!!
Bradenton, FL |
The office repeatedly promised the doctor would phone me. He never did. Today, a nurse called and tried to convince me to remain on a drug that I told her is making me so sick I cannot get thru the day. She told me the doc would call but he did not. Instead, the doctor has dismissed me from his practice. And I am now going to be out of pain med and facing withdraw without assistance. I am shocked that the doc' never talked to me about my med's.
